Congratulations to Kimberly Paige

Kimberly Paige, SI Manassas' 2012 Women's Opportunity Award recipient was honored as "Graduate of the Year" by the Transitional Housing BARN at its annual "Festival of Trees" Gala.  Kimberly received a standing ovation for her speech describing how she and her 3 young daughters became homeless after leaving an abusive relationship.  She was grateful to BARN for providing a place to live, peace and security for her family and the help to regain her footing in society.  Kimberly worked hard, taking on two jobs, completed courses to become a certified pre-school teacher and was able to move into her own home.  Kimberly credited SIM Manassas and the Women's Opportunity Award with making her dream of becoming a certified pre-school teacher possible.  Congratulations to Kimberly!  We are all so proud of your continued success.
